6:11am
up with a safe word. >> i did not want him. his safe word was more daddy more. >> stephanie: and that's why they switch topics because you could tell that you -- the pope is saying too many things that jesus actually said. >> uh-huh. but you are kissing a muslim convict's feet on easter? and she's a woman! so would jesus you socialist. >> stephanie: yeah so then we switched to the equally crazy gail trotter. >> we have offended everyone. i'm proud of us. >> stephanie: me too. hey, looky here best jobs numbers -- the job creation en engine revved up in april. unemployment dropped to 7.5%,

6:14am
marry, and i said has john fugelsang told you how creepy i am about you. and he said, yeah, little bit. >> yeah he is a get a guy. >> stephanie: he is my favorite new writer in "the daily beast." he wrote a great piece yesterday called the next time the nra will lose. this is unprecedented. he is predicting along with a lot of other people that the president is right we are going to win, this isn't over. >> on background check? >> stephanie: yes, he has inside information from several people that are ready to change their vote. you are seen the polls, all of the people who voted for have seen their numbers go up and all of them who voted against it, their numbers plummeted. >> yeah, and we haven't even had the vote yet. >> stephanie: yes, and i vote
6:15am
for letting us have a vote. mike writes the background check bill isn't finished and when it comes up for a vote again, the pressure will be on the senators who recently did the nra's bidding. how stupid does the vote look now? i asked the others. they obviously knew they were going to lose. i would say not very stupid at all. the nose dive taken in the polls by the numbers of senator who voted against the bill makes it crystal clear that legislators in washington are feeling heat from someone other than the nra. how about that. >> it's amazing. kind of sad the ussenate needs a
6:16am
background check. >> stephanie: see what you did there. and he talks about the polls. he says e-gad could it be possible that all of those polls were right. all of the clever people poo-pooed them because they were done by mayors against illegal guns. it is like mitt romney oh those polls aren't right. >> it's terrible to even ponder but what if i can't stop thinking about is what if the gun the tsarnaev brother used to kill the officer at mit was sold as a legal gun at a gun show. >> stephanie: right. if we were able to tries it more quickly -- >> gun powder we cannot track
6:17am
because of the nra lobbying. >> stephanie: exactly. now the pressure is on the other side, it's on the nra -- oh, it's their annual convention today and tomorrow. guess who will open the meeting? sarah palin and glenn beck will close it. the speakers feature not single democrat. >> it's the perfect storm of evil and dumb. >> stephanie: and he says they are going to lose. five republicans have expressed interest in switching their vote. and of the democrats, heitkamp is a bigger question mark. remember call them. and one would hope he would grow a conscious before he leaves. manchin and toomey deserve great
6:18am
credit for sticking with this. kay hagan is also up for reelection, again, red states but have supported the bill every bit as much -- and she makes them look like cowards. and it accomplished a lot, it pulls a few bricks lose from the wall. next time the wall by crumble. thank you michael. >> you want to date him. ♪ nah nah nah nah nah ♪ >> stephanie: right, but amazing. they were saying when does that ever happen, a bill loses, and there's that possibility that quickly? >> when was a bill have 90% support? that's more popular than christmas. the nra is saying we didn't have background checks but we need a national registry for mentally
6:19am
ill people. >> stephanie: yeah, i was saying last night you can get a dog taken away from you -- >> you need a license to fish. >> stephanie: and there are not going to be any charges of the 5 year old shooting the 2 year old -- >> you can't even apply for a job without some creepy boss wanting your facebook pass word. >> stephanie: i know. >> tarnation. >> stephanie: what [ inaudible ] oh, stephanie, my glory. love her!

6:41am
>> stephanie: good. the pro gun people are becoming the washington generals in this debate. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: bruce in florida. >> what i was thinking is that you ever notice that every person who owns a gun is proud to tell you they own a gun. they have a bumper sticker, gun racks, and yet they won't allow themselves to register with the government. >> stephanie: yeah, how come you are so proud. >> i don't want to register, because then the government will have my personal information so i'll angrily talk about this on facebook which gathers my personal information. >> stephanie: that's a good point. we register our cars and we don't worry about, oh, the government is coming to take our
6:42am
cars. >> yeah, i was like don't youing want background checks if it saves one life and he says what if it causes a life. it's like stay inside for the weekend. when they say we should be allowed to sell our guns to friends without notifying the government, the crips and the bloods feel the same way. keep track of them like we keep track of cars and go all the way and keep track of bullets. >> stephanie: michael in philadelphia is a tea partier who hates me. >> caller: no, no. i enjoy the show. i disagree with everything you say -- >> stephanie: it's almost like we are married. >> caller: absolutely. number 1 i would like you to speak a lot about the department of homeland security buying over a billion dollars rounds of

[overlapping speakers] >> caller: you are talking about registering every weapon -- >> how is that taking away your second amendment right. >> stephanie: why is it okay to register your car -- >> caller: you trust the government way too much -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> so you don't like the worlds well regulated in the second amendment, right? >> caller: well regulated -- >> what do you think -- >> that means well regulated. it means keeping track of the arms. >> it does not. it never says that. >> it says well regulated. >> stephanie: well what does it refer to bowel regularity.
6:45am
>> caller: the second amendment was formed to stop a tyrannical government. >> what do the two words well regulated mean to you. >> caller: a well regulated militia, the courts have never stated that that means the government should have control of all weapons -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> what does that mean to you? [overlapping speakers] >> stephanie: how does you having to register something, how does that mean the government controls it? >> caller: it's very simply -- in our day and age, they have the right to know what you have -- we have already seen it printed by complete morons who printed gun owners, and there was a rash of robberies breaking into homes stealing guns. >> you are fighting for
6:46am
proliferation. you are fighting for gun proliferation and not keeping track of these kill machines mister. >> caller: we have plenty of regulations on the dockets right now -- >> says you, my friend. >> stephanie: why do you think -- i don't know about a billion times more gun deaths in america than any other country in the world? >> caller: well, i -- i don't think it has anything to do with the very simple fact that in the 1970s, 60% of households had guns. today it's down to 30 and the crimes are through the roof. >> but there wasn't the kind of poverty that we have now. look my friend all you have to do is look at what australia did in 1996 and it proves all of your argument wrong -- >> caller: australian murder rate and assault rates have gone
6:47am
through the roof -- >> stephanie: no they are not. >> no there not -- >> stephanie: hang on. this is the problem with the right-wing trolls. these statistics are completely untrue. i just quoted a study. it is minuscule the amount of crime that is stopped by people with guns as compared to people with -- you are 43 times more likely to kill someone you know or love if you have a gun in the home. >> it's like arguing with reese witherspoon when you are trying to give her a ticket. >> this is a test. this is the test of the right-wing troll notification system. this is only a test. >> ben benghazi iiiiiiiiiii --

7:42am
their parrot this stuff from rush our whatever, and you say that doesn't make sense and here is why, and then they switch the subject. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: here is the underlying thing with right-wingers today. i think when mr. obama was elected president they seriously thing that they have lost the country; that it's over; -- and so they are so flipped out and paranoid about it but they won't discuss that. so this gun thing, i think, along with a lot of their other arguments and issues, is they want their guns because they seriously think they have lost their government, and it is going to come down to them needing those guns. and the funny thing is as a veteran, it tickles me pink to think these moron fat guys are going to be able to defend themselves with their ar15s
